RAF 34" Crash Tender - Posted: 8 years ago by Bob Jordan
I built this kit In early 1977 while stationed at RAAF Amberley In Queensland. It originally was engined with an Enya 35 and at some time later ended up fitted with an OS40.
It travelled around Australia with me and ended up In Perth where It has been stored In my shed for approx the last 20 years - I now have the time to restore It and and do a conversion to electric drive.
Can anyone please advise as to electric motor and speed control that I should be looking at and where I might be able to purchase a fittings kit.

HI Bob, glad you have eventually got round to renovating your crash tender... took a while eh!
for a wide ranging list of power set-ups for your boat, scroll down the list on the left of the home page to "all things RC" then scroll down the pop-up menu to "power set-up" and there they all are! my own 34" I use a graupner speed 600 8.4v on 9.6 numh's gives the boat a really nice sit In the water and doesnt cost an arm and a leg. but there are loads more options such as outrunners and lipo batteries etc.
fitting kits are still available for the 34" boat In the uk, just scroll down the "fireboat" page to find the contact details. good luck... It will be worth It

Dusseldorf Fireboat at speed ! - Posted: 8 years ago by Gregg
Photo's taken on sunday [6/4/10] weather was quite windy so water a bit choppy, but fireboat coped very well as you can see from the superb bow wave It creates! the twin prop and 4 rudder arrangement makes It a very maneouverable boat, even at high speed It handles all tight turns with ease and dont swamp the stern deck either!

I am very new to all of this, and am looking for any plans, or kits that are available for boats such as the New York Firefighter, or the Seattle fireboat Duwamish. Any help would be appreiciated.
Response by deckape on the 19th Jun 2010
The Revell New York Firefighter kit Is out of production perhaps some day Revell might reissue the kit like everything else they produce so many and go to something else. the best suggestion I can give you Is to check ebaythese New york fireboats appear from time to time, I bought this kit In 1966. Had It all those years, she was originally a static display peice got the urge to RC her I followed up on the urge to do this. Now I take out to the metro pond.

Loschkreuzer Wesel Fire Boat - Posted: 8 years ago by Justintime
Just completed , not exactly origonal but not too far out. On the pond for the first time today after a rebuld, and very happy with It I am. Graupner kit, Don't know the builder, but when bought It was yellow! It just had to be put back to red. I didn't like the green deck, so It became mid-grey (gloss rubbed down to semi-mat). Powered by 3 Graupner 500 motors. Working radar and lights (worked from a key-fob, not transmitter). Sailed at Inverleith Pond, Edinburgh. Home of Edinburgh Model Boat Club.

34in Aerokit Fireboat - Posted: 8 years ago by Stroller
Had a full refurb but still need the window frames making when I can get round to It . Goes really well with a Graupner 700BB Neodym on 14.4 volts. Still trying to find the right prop, but pretty close now to getting It right . Aim to getting It up to 19.2 volt
Should really fly then.

HI Stroller, how did you get on with the neo 700? I tried one a bit ago In my boat but It blew up the esc twice!
Response by Stonemonkey on the 19th Apr 2012
Brilliant tender fella. Great detail, have just bought an old 46'' of the same, half built and am looking for Inspiration!

FIRE BOAT - Posted: 8 years ago by bostondick
This was a Damage R/C Police Boat ( That Is mass produce In the USA and can be found on eBay anyday ) That I converted Into a fire boat .This Is for display only. It Is 21 " or 533.4 mm long 6" or 152.4 mm at It's widest point .Everything on It was put on my myself except the hand rails , air horn and anchor . The black on the deck Is all real non-skid .This was a fun project to do for I never did work with anything like this or this large before . Most of my customizing and kitbashing Is with diecast fire trucks .
